Mosaic
'Clear and vibrant colour with an intense plum heart and a ruby rim. Minimal intervention might result in some colour sediment over time. A complex nose with a combination of dark plums and blueberries with luscious hints of fruitcake. The oak lends more tertiary flavours but the core remains fruity with the generosity we have come to rely on from the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde. A gently opulence on the palate, lovely fine tannins and a generous finish. A good match with smoked salmon or game fish, but the generous palate would also marry well with roast duck or a casserole.' – Winemakers

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
'1st attempt at vinifying their Oudam high-density bushvine vineyard using an ‘elevated regime’. Remarkable depth & poise, silky opulence in 2017, 10% whole berries, 16 months in French oak, 30% new, for filigree tannins, floral perfume, some undergrowth notes, vivacious red fruit.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Bosman's Upper-Hemel-en-Aarde Valley wines are improving with every vintage. This is quite a firm, ambitious, ageworthy style of Pinot Noir, with 30% new wood, sinewy, assertive tannins and dark cherry and raspberry fruit. Needs time in bottle. Drink 2022-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100
